The fire are was effected by erratic downdraft's as well as a lot of lightning while receiving very little precipitation.

Wildfires in Alaska typically burn unevenly, resulting in a mosaic pattern, or patchwork, of vegetation across the landscape. The burn patterns on the landscape from the Long Lake, Chisana 2, and Tetlin Hills Fires are a good example of this type of mosaic burn pattern.
Wildfires in the Tok area will eventually be “out” by sustained cool and rainy weather conditions, which typical arrive in late summer or early autumn.
